my whole life
you get too excited over the wins. sure it feels good, sure it looks impressive but at the end of the day you've just taken the first step forward on a very long journey. shut your mouth, put your head down, continue to grind.
know why your doing what your doing. if you go for a short arbitrage flip, know why are you doing that.
their are three types of career paths. 1) typical career route, going on corporate latter 2) startup high risk high reward 3) non sexy, not high growth, but typical business ie dentist
no right answers to which career path
typical career route going up corporate latter is going to bring you resources, network to make lead to a career in entrepreneurship.
the return on a single (baseball metaphor) exit is potentially less than what you would have took in a salary. that is a good case scenario. risk is an efficient market.
life is a surfboard, you need to build a big surfboard (skills, network, resources) and then put yourself in the best position ride the way (out of your control, aka luck) for those compounding returns
note to self - interesting how small i feel when with big people - it is all relative
I spent the whole day planned around someone getting something done on schedule. It wasn't done and it fucked the day up. Fine line between not relying on others and having a team support you.
You get what you pay for and I was trying to cut corners by paying less. The result is time and frustration that would have been avoided without cutting corners. Frustrating.
